Fodor's Review

This temple was built for a great 16th-century Maui king named Piilani and his heirs. Hawaiian families continue to maintain and protect this sacred site as they have for centuries, and they have not been eager to turn it into a tourist attraction. However, they now offer a brochure, so you can tour the property yourself, including the 122-acre Kahanu Garden, a federally funded research center focusing on the ethnobotany of the Pacific. To get here, turn left onto

Ulaino Road at Hana Highway mile marker 31; the road turns to gravel; continue 1½ miles.
